Experimenting with Marshmallows
Good news! I have been baking up a storm lately, so that means more tutorials and experiments. YAY!
Today I have a delicious recipe that is completely my own. I took inspiration from different sources and through it all together in an experiment.
This is the end result.
Doesn’t that look yummy?! This turned out to be a lovely gooey slice.
- 200 g Butter, Softened (1 Cup)
- 1 and 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 2 Large Eggs
- 1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract
- 1 and 3/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
- 2/3 Cup Wholemeal Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- ½ tsp Baking Powder
- 1/8 tsp Salt
- 140 g Marshmallows, Chopped in half
- 1 Tin Condensed Milk (395g)
- 40 g Butter
- 1/4 Tbsp. Golden Syrup (corn syrup)
- 1/4 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a 9"x13" tin.
- Cream the butter and brown sugar together until creamy.
- Add the eggs one at a time and beat in between.
Add the vanilla extract.
Stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Take 2/3 of the dough and spread evenly over the base of the slice tin.
- Place in the oven for 5 minutes.
- For the Caramel;
- Place the butter, brown sugar, golden syrup and condensed milk in a pan.
- Bring to a light boil and removed from the heat.
- Once the base is out of the oven, sprinkle the chopped marshmallows over the base.
- Pour over the caramel.
- Top with the rest of the dough and place in the oven for 25-35 minutes.
- Check it at 25 and if the top is golden brown it is cooked.
- Allow to cool for 15 minutes if you don’t mind it being messy when you cut it. Otherwise allow it to cool completely and place it in the fridge for an hour so you get a nice clean cut.
Check out the experiment and try it for yourselves!
